  1. You are doing great, Jackie! Our friend singer/songwriter Bernice Lewis said it best in her song Normal…is just a setting on the washing machine.

  2. Hey Jackie, take it easy on yourself. You will figure out normal. It won’t be the same normal as before. But you aren’t there yet. Time, patience, one day at a time. You don’t need to have it all figured out right this second. Keep writing, be present, celebrate every milestone and victory of Ana’s healing. Drop anything it is possible to drop. Really. You are amazing.

  3. This post has such deep concepts. I found this most moving:
    “In a weird way, Ana’s illness actually gave me a bit of relief from the “normal” chaos of my life. It honed my focus to ONE thing: save Ana, save Ana, save Ana. And that directive is still there. It’s still FRONT and CENTER, but now it has to be rolled into “normal” because she is getting better and little by little she’ll get her life back – school, friends, ice skating – and this will fade like pain must fade.”

    There it is, right? Keep on keeping on. Love you. xoxoxo
